GSSI, the world’s leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, announces it will be highlighting tools for archaeologists at the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) 84th Annual Meeting, which will be held April 10-14, 2019 at the Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Booth #412. On display will be the UtilityScan® GPR System, the StructureScan™ Mini XT and the Palm XT miniaturized GPR antenna for the StructureScan Mini XT.
The UtilityScan is a full-featured, easy to use, and highly portable GPR system. UtilityScan is a cost effective GPR solution ideal for archaeological, cemetery, and forensic work. The system provides excellent resolution, unparalleled data quality, and enhanced depth penetration. UtilityScan incorporates our patented HyperStacking technology, which provides better data in less-than-ideal soil conditions and exceptional resistance to external noise. A state-of-the-art real-time gain algorithm optimizes field data, meaning you’ll spend less time setting up the system and more time collecting data.
Also, on display is the StructureScan Mini XT, GSSI’s latest all-in-one handheld GPR system. The Mini XT is a small and powerful system, making it ideal for tight spaces, remote field locations, or other situations that are unsuitable for larger equipment. The Mini XT can reach a max depth of 24 inches in concrete and 18 inches in soil. The exceptional data resolution is suitable for investigating forensic targets under or within concrete, acquiring detailed GPR profiles of archaeological features or GPR-based stratigraphic recordation. In addition to the Mini XT, visitors can see the optional Palm XT antenna. The Palm XT is designed to enhance the capabilities of the Mini XT and is the smallest antenna on the market, making it the perfect tool for small excavation units or other cramped spaced.
Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. is the world leader in the development, manufacture, and sale of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, primarily for the concrete inspection, utility mapping and locating, road and bridge deck evaluation, geophysics, and archaeology markets. Our equipment is used all over the world to explore the subsurface of the earth and to inspect infrastructure systems non-destructively. GSSI created the first commercial GPR system nearly 50 years ago and continues to provide the widest range and highest quality GPR equipment available today.
